Grey’s Anatomy Finale: Well At Least Meredith and Derek’s Baby Didn’t Die!
In this years finale a huge storm hit Seattle, and when everything goes wrong in the OR then doctors call it a perfect storm. Yeah, that was Meredith’s voiceover intro to this episode.
When the power went out, the back up generator at the hospital ended up blowing at the most inopportune time. They also learned they didn’t have enough spare batteries for all their machines . . . oops! Yup, the perfect storm, with a real one going on outside.
A bus ended up crashing in front of the hospital, and a bunch of people were trapped inside and flood waters were rising. Jackson risked his life to save a little girl trapped in the bus. For a moment we thought he died, as the bus blew up. But there were thirty minutes left, so this was just a red herring. He was alive, but watching him almost die made April realize he was who she wanted. She told him as much at the end of the episode. She wanted him, she wanted him to give her a reason not to marry the medic . . . (who proposed in the previous episode).
Meredith of course picked now to go into labor (well Shonda picked now). Not only was there no power, but she would need a C-section as well. The baby survived, but Meredith started to have complications due to her fall in the previous episode prior to her water breaking. She knew what was wrong and had to guide Ross through what to do. He was nervous to do this without someone else there. Meredith made it worse when she told him not to use lifesaving measures on her, she didn’t want to be left a vegetable. However when she passed out, Miranda overcame her fears to help Ross save the day. Miraculously Meredith and the baby wound up okay!
Alex finally told the intern he loves how he feels. Eh, I’m over this story at this point.
Christina realized Owen would never be happy with just her, no matter how much he claimed he would. She finally broke things off with him. I’m so depressed about this! I loved them together and hoped Christina might come around to adopting an older child or something. But, she is staying true to herself.
Arizona cheated on Callie in the previous episode with the new doctor she was working with. Callie figured it out when she saw they had on each other’s scrubs . . . This lead to a huge blow up between Arizona and Callie. Arizona blew up at Callie screaming she wasn’t on the plane, she doesn’t know how it was. Callie said she lost Mark in that crash, she almost lost her. Arizona cried she lost her leg, the one thing she told Callie not to do was cut her leg off. Callie can’t believe it still comes back to that leg. She told Arizona she did lose something else in that crash, her wife! Frankly I now loath Arizona. She can’t blame the crash, Callie or her leg for cheating . . . that is all on her!
Near the end of the episode the generator started back up, thanks to someone tinkering with it. But it also blew again and someone was left electrocuted. The final shot showed us it was Chief Weber! Nooooooooooooooooooooooo! Is he dead? Unfortunately he probably is. It’s not a finale of “Grey’s” unless someone dies after all.
Grey’s Anatomy: Poor Bailey!
So this past week more of the shiz hit the fan in the crucifixion of Bailey. Jackson, seeking to protect the hospital, called in the CDC, which basically began a witch hunt and Bailey was to be burned at the stake. It seemed like Meredith was the only one on her side, and she led the charge to stand by Bailey. I loved this!
Bailey overheard The Chief talking to one of his patients, who was timid about having their son have a life saving procedure at the hospital of death. He basically threw her under the bus, saying the cause was one doctor who is not working and every OR has been cleaned and verified. She was hurt, and left before he told one of the interns that this wasn’t Bailey’s fault, it could have happened to any one of them, but he needed to calm them down.
Later when Bailey was cleared, she was relieved, but hurt. The problem was the gloves she used, bought by Pegasus of course. They lead to her obtaining a staff infection without her knowing. I wonder if this will mean more trouble for Owen? However she was not able to forgive Chief Weber. She lashed into him. She said she stood by him when he was a drunk, when he was cheating on Adele, and he couldn’t even stand by her. It was powerful stuff! Go Bailey!
Other things going on. Joe is moving on with the Douchebag Dr, and Alex has finally realized he’s in love with her, but losing her. Meanwhile the kid Owen has been watching over, well his mother ended up dying. He’s now in the care of his grandma, who is probably not capable of watching him. Christina is realizing how much a kid means to Owen, and that she’s going to lose him over it.
ABC May Sweeps and Season Finale Spoilers!
Below are a ton of spoilers for ABC shows for May Sweeps (which begins tonight!) through the season finales. As with last year, “Once Upon A Time’s” finale is under tight wraps. There are huge hints in the two-hour two-part finale thought . . .
On “Once Upon A Time,” well the two-part finale is clearly Pan-centric. Most people are expecting it to come out that Bae is also Peter Pan.
On “Castle,” the season ends with Beckett questioning her relationship with Castle. No new turn of events with the Senator nor her mother’s case it seems . . .
On “Body of Proof,” it seems we won’t see the season finale of this till later, given its late mid-season start.
On “Nashville,” it seems the drama between Teddy and Rayna comes to a head and involves the girls. Will Deacon learn he’s a daddy?
On “Grey’s Anatomy,” a disaster closes out this season. You know it’s not a season finale of “Grey’s” with out some kind of disaster. This year it seems to be some kind of monsoon.

Grey’s Anatomy: Mama’s In Trouble!
Oh boy did “Grey’s” bring it this week. In my last post I noted that while I had been enjoying the show, nothing had been happening to really “wow” me. This episode brought the shock though! However I don’t think I liked this turn of events honestly. Oh no they didn’t go there!
Meredith and Derek learned that Meredith did test positive for a genetic predisposition for Alzheimer’s. Bailey tried to tell her this didn’t mean she’d develop it, but Meredith being Meredith is already planning her funeral. She was finalizing her will, trying to figure if Christina wasn’t the person to leave the kids to and more. I will admit when she asked Christina to give her a lethal injection the minute she couldn’t find her keys, their dialogue was good. Only Christina could make “You had me at lethal injection” funny.
Ross was still fuming over Brooks being on Derek’s service, and Derek didn’t make things easier for him. Basically Derek told him as book smarts and technical as he is . . . he’s lacking that thing that Brooks has. Go Brooks! Sorry Ross . . . I love Brooks
April lamented over telling her paramedic the truth about her virginity. When she finally did tell him, he pretty much dumped her. WOW! I think we all knew she’d end up back with Jackson, but I’m not counting him out yet. I can see him returning to try and get her back.
Some doctors from a former Soviet country showed up to learn techniques from the doctors they could perform in the field with limited equipment. None of the doctors were prepared for how limited these two had it, but they stepped up. Throughout this the other doctors continued to bicker over funding for their pet projects. I’m seeing some kind of “Doctors Across Borders” storyline emerging, probably putting Owen in some season finale life or death situation.
Finally, Bailey spent the entire episode berating her former interns for training sloppy interns of their own. It seems poor Leah (who looks way too much like Jo and I can’t tell them apart) came to work with the flu one week, and now all the patients she and Bailey tended to have surgical infections. She thought she’d be fired, Bailey was furious, but in the end another patient turned up that Leah never saw. It looks like Bailey’s in trouble! Oh no, not Bailey! I can’t take it!
The next new episode is not till April 25th . . . So far away! These weeks of reruns are killing me. Poor Bailey!
So ever since the big take-over of the hospital got resolved, the show has been in a little bit of a slump. The shows haven’t been bad by any means, but I feel like they also haven’t been overly exciting or pushing stories forward much. They have set up a few teases, but it seems now we have to wait until the season comes to an end in May for anymore big storylines and bombs to be dropped.
Alex is still in love with his intern Jo, madly in love with her, but she’s dating who he’s nicknamed “Dr. Douchebag.” For once I feel for Alex and am on his side. I’m sure though he’ll do something to screw things up.
Jackson and April had a moment this week in the lastest episode, even though they are both dating others. It was enough to see the spark was still there. I’m rooting for these two, but I know it probably won’t be an easy road back together. I will admit I do like April’s new guy, but I don’t like the intern Jackson is dating at all.
Meredith has been worried about her baby a lot, but has found out that all the tests show her son is perfectly healthy and normal. By the end of this episode she then went back to worrying about herself and Zola. She wanted Zola genomapped by Bailey to find out if there is anything she should know about her, and she wanted to be genomapped to see if she was going to come down with Alzheimers. I’m thinking nothing good will come of this!
Finally Brookes and Ross are now fighting with one another over Derek. Ross didn’t want to be off Derek’s service, Brookes wanted on it. Derek realized Ross had to go through the rotations and experience all the doctors and hospital had to offer. Ross however thinks Brookes has sabotaged him. Lay off Brookes, she’s my favorite!
Grey’s Anatomy: Seattle Grace Is No More . . .
So the latest episode of “Grey’s Anatomy” had the doctors all arguing over the hospital and how it should be run. Nobody could get along, and Jackson was basically drowning in responsibility. It was a good episode, but not one of the best in recent memory. It was okay.
Katherine and Webber ended up in a bit of a feud over Jackson. He felt she had piled too much on the boy, and he could end up breaking and never get over this. She felt he was an Avery and could handle the pressure and would come out on top. Later she apologized for snapping at him, realizing it had been a long time since she had a man in her life who also cared about her son. Neither knew Jackson was listening in on their fight . . .
Meanwhile the schedules were a mess, organs to be transplanted were getting lost in a mess of protocol, the doctors were fighting, and Owen quit when it came out that the foundation felt a new Chief should be appointed. It basically looked like the hospital was going to sink even after all the millionaires club had done to save it.
In the end, Jackson did find his balls and managed to save the day. He said they would run the hospital as they saw fit, and would report to the foundation, not the other way around. He said Hunt would not be replaced, and he suggested they rename the hospital to remind them why they fought to save it and what it stood for . . . The new name would be “The Grey Sloan Memorial Hospital.” I thought that was really touching and would hopefully keep them all from squabbling with one another. For a few episodes at least.

Grey’s Anatomy: Mama Bought You A Hospital!
So the long drawn out storyline of the doctor’s secret plan to buy the hospital came to an end this week, with a really great twist I didn’t see coming. That pleased me. The doctors met with a billionaire mogul who was very invested in the tech industry, but hadn’t gotten a foothold into medical tech. They pitched their idea to him, but had to bring in someone with actual managerial experience. They were forced to thus bring Weber into their secret, and he was happy to not only help but contribute. Apparently he has a couple of million lying around himself! Meanwhile the board and that horrible doctor lady struck a new deal with Pegasus, but this time to sell the hospital off for parts. Everyone was freaking out, and Christina brought Owen in on the secret to buy them time. In the end, the Pegasus deal fell through because Owen said they had another buyer, but the tech guy fell through too. In the end Katherine Avery announced that the Harper-Avery foundation believed in this hospital and would be their financial backer, their only request as the biggest shareholder is someone of their choosing sit on the board as a representative. Jackson was living that his mom bought a hospital to be his boss, but she told him “No honey we’ve picked you, give your momma a kiss for buying you a hospital!” Oh dear, this will make Jackson very unlikable to many is my guess.
While Grey was away she had “Mousey” aka her intern Heather being her eyes and ears, and she was still keeping tabs on her patients through her. Bailey was furious with the lot of them for upping and quitting, until Heather finally had enough of hearing her bad talk Meredith and told her that Meredith was giving her the ideas they used to save a patient who was out of hope in this episode. Ouch! Out of all the inters she is my favorite, but then again I loved her in ‘Napoleon Dynamite’ and ‘True Blood’ too.
Meanwhile Alex is totally falling in love with his intern Jo, but as far as he knows she only sees him as a great teacher and a friend. When she thought the hospital was over and she’d move on, she told him how she’d never find a mentor like him again and yada yada. You could see he just wanted to kiss her, but didn’t. I hope Alex doesn’t end up with a broken heart because he’s actually been an awesome guy lately, and not his usual ass of a person.
Grey’s Anatomy: Chaotic Buyers!
So the past two episodes of “Grey’s” continued to set up the millionaire doctors to buy the hospital. However this wasn’t without its problems. Not all the doctors were initially on board, namely Arizona and Christina. Neither were sold on the idea. Also there were financial and legal problems, such as doctors can’t own a hospital they work at. I’m not sure if this is real or made up for television, because it seems to me doctors own their practices? Whatever, they would have to form some bizarre board to get around that one. Finally, and the biggest issue was they didn’t have enough money with all their winnings combined. They needed to buy time, and Pegasus was ready to make an offer.
Callie and Weber went under cover to a local hospital that was purchased by Pegasus, and they didn’t like what they found. A machine run, cold and unfeeling place where all the doctors felt trapped and miserable.
Back at Seattle Grace, the doctors there were finally starting to feel the Pegasus treatment as well. The interns were all preparing to flee to other hospitals, and Christina after confronting them couldn’t deny their logic. They came here to learn to be the best, that didn’t seem to be in their future here. Bailey had tests denied a child patient, which could have saved his life without more horrible surgeries. Bailey told the kids parents to leave this hospital, find a better place for their son. She then told Arizona she was thinking it’s time for her to go as well, maybe move to LA and be with her husband.
Arizona and Christina got onboard after these encounters, but Pegasus was moving in fast. To stall, the doctors all quit at the board meeting where the deal was going down. Without the doctors, and especially Derek, Pegasus pulled out of the deal.
However the doctors now are unemployed and still don’t have the money to buy the hospital! Now it looks like they could really be in deep. Next week Owen finds out what Christina has done, and he isn’t happy at all. Christina could be out a job and a boyfriend. These two can’t win can they?
I will say I am enjoying this new twist in the story, and am even liking the new interns. Ross defacing all of Derek’s posters around the hospital, on his orders was great!
I found this week’s episode of “Grey’s” just so-so. It mainly focused on some problematic patients or issues with them, as well as problems with the new protocols. The staff was being monitored by an “eye in the sky” camera which gave feedback on cheaper ways to do things, as well as trying to avoid costly mistakes. Owen roped the financial doctor into a surgery hoping to somehow get her back in touch with her human side, while April and Derek worked to cut costs in other departments to save the ER.
In the end came the inevitable news, the woman wasn’t trying to save their hospital, she was trying to make it presentable to a buyer. She was a hospital fluffer basically. Again I think what this is all leading to is the millionaires club buying the hospital themselves, or becoming part owners with someone else.
The one case that irked me in this episode was the one involving the young kid who was possibly a Jehovah’s Witness. I say possibly as they seemed to lead to questions about him and his faith. A friend brought him in after a serious accident, he had a torn aorta, and they were about to prep him with blood when they found a Jehova’s Witness medal on him. This meant no transfusions or transplants, they’ve have to do bloodless surgery and use alternatives. The metal wasn’t around his neck, he wasn’t wearing it, but Yang thought perhaps it was thrown or broke during the accident. Later the friend who he spent most of his day with hanging out and working with mentioned that he never once mentioned his religion to him, and he felt it was odd that if he practiced a faith that he was willing to die for that it also wasn’t equally as important to share that information with him or anyone else . . . Hmmm . . . Yang’s intern was the only one questioning what this kid may have wanted, what he was feeling. Yang said all they could do was talk to his family, which were against any transfusions. They said it would be worse for him to live with such blood in him, and better for him to die without it. In the end, he did die. I just felt like we were left with so many questions, and the most important question “what would he want” was never asked of his family. Was he questioning his religion? Was he no longer practicing? Had he found another faith? This storyline really pushed my buttons, which of course is what it was meant to do.
